Andy Reid says he should have left the Travis Kelce pass tucked away

New, comments

With his Kansas City Chiefs at their own 40-yard line tied 6-6 with the New York Giants in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s game, head coach Andy Reid called a second-down Travis Kelce pass. The play resulted in an interception.

Reid said Tyreek Hill was the primary receiver on the play, but when the Giants did a good job covering him, Kelce chose to launch it to Demarcus Robinson on the right side of the field.

Reid admitted Monday he wish he could have done things differently.

“I take responsibility on that one,” he said. “All said and done, I should have just left that one on the play sheet.”

The Giants didn’t score immediately after the turnover, but it was another opportunity the Chiefs forfeited in an eventual 12-9 overtime loss.
